CCM Exclusive Video Premiere
Hannah Kerr — “Split the Sea” (David Hamilton Arrangement)

Hannah shares her Story Behind the Song to “Split the Sea”:

“I am so excited to share this special version of “Split the Sea!” I had the dream to record this song in a more intimate and simple way, and David Hamilton brought that dream to life by creating this beautiful arrangement of the song. The piano and strings feel so worshipful and reverent, and the video’s woodsy setting flooded with light fit the music and the message so well too. It was just really amazing to see how all the elements in this process fit together—the lyrics, the music, and the video feel cohesive and unique — and I love that. I’m so grateful to David Hamilton and the video’s director, Eric Welch, for sharing their gifts and helping me create this new version. I hope the beauty and drama of this arrangement of “Split the Sea” can help us all remember the faithfulness and character of God. Even if we find ourselves in a situation that seems impossible, He is still the God of miracles, and we just have to believe in Him. Thanks for watching!”

“Split the Sea” Lyrics:
Never thought I’d be where I am now
No way through and no way out
Oh it’s hard, but I’m still holding on
Even here, nothing’s too far gone

I believe
Every promise that You’ve spoken
I believe
You are faithful every moment
It may look impossible
But You’re the God of miracles
You have always made a way for me
You can still split the sea

With a word, the waves will separate
Who You were, You are, You’ll never change
Hearts will heal and mountains move
There is nothing that You cannot do

I believe
Every promise that You’ve spoken
I believe
You are faithful every moment
It may look impossible
But You’re the God of miracles
You have always made a way for me
You can still split the sea
You can still split the sea

As I wait upon the shore
Lift my hands up to You, Lord
I believe
I still believe
As I wait upon the shore
Lift my hands up to You, Lord
I believe
I still believe
I believe

I believe
Every promise that You’ve spoken
I believe
You are faithful every moment
It may look impossible
But You’re the God of miracles
You have always made a way for me
You can still split the sea
You can still split the sea
